IMPORTANT UPDATE ON COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
Following the NSW Premier's announcement, we will be proceeding with the event as planned, with a few extra measures. We will continue to respond to government advice as it becomes available, and will update attendees if needed.
MASKS ARE MANDATORY INDOORS
As of 5:00pm AEST Thursday 6 May, masks are mandatory in all indoor venues in the Greater Sydney area. Please make sure you have a fitted face mask and wear it at all times when at the venue, with the exception of eating, drinking or speaking publicly.
If you are unable to acquire a mask, we will have a small number available at the entrance.
PRACTICE COVID-SAFE MEASURES, AS NORMAL
A reminder to follow NSW COVID-19 guidelines, including not shaking hands, maintaining physical distancing, washing your hands regularly and using hand sanitiser.
We have a COVID-safe plan in place for the conference - please see more details on ICC Sydney's EventSafe measures. The space booked at ICC is much larger than required to allow for easier social distancing.
If you are feeling unwell, please get tested, and stay home. All delegates will have access to the online streaming platform, even if you have nominated to attend in-person, so you can tune in at home if for any reason you can't make it to the venue.
The online conference streaming platform is now open for delegates to plan your day by saving sessions to 'My program', browse our conference sponsor profiles, view videos, download content, and request appointments ahead of the conference. If you have registered for the in-person or the online conference, you will have received an email with details on how to login.
In 2021, responsible investment has gone mainstream, becoming a foundation of good investment practice. No longer just 'bells and whistles', it is now essential to managing risk, seizing opportunity and maximising performance.
As our region's largest gathering of responsible investors, the Responsible Investment Association Australasia's RI Australia 2021 will bring together the responsible, ethical and impact investment community to shine a light on best practice and the significant themes emerging and shaping the industry.
The conference will be delivered in a hybrid format – both in-person and online – to allow interstate and international delegates who don't wish to travel to participate.
RI Australia 2021 will look at how responsible investing can better deliver real world outcomes, showing the pathways and opportunities for a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and a resilient economy aligned with the Paris Agreement and the SDGs.
The conference dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday 6 May, 6.30pm-9.30pm at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf, level 3 loft.
Don't miss this opportunity to network with peers, deepen knowledge and position yourself ahead of the curve as responsible investing anchors itself firmly in the spotlight.
